´╗┐We all know what music scores look like. Have you ever wondered what dance scores look like, or if they even exist? There are in fact several dance notation systems and one of the most popular for ballet is Benesh Movement Notation (BMN). Like most languages, it is easier to read than it is to write. Reading basic ballet positions and movements is relatively simple.

This book introduces you to the fundamental concepts of BMN to help you read basic ballet positions from three "schools" of ballet: English, Italian, and Russian. The basic poses are described in words, images, and notated examples. Using interactive features, readers can add Highlights, take Notes, make Study Cards, and complete Reviews to learn BMN fundamentals while brushing up on ballet vocabulary.


  • A must for dance teachers!

    This is a very user friendly, easy way to start learning how to read Benesh notation, especially for RAD members since all syllabus materials are notated. Every question you might have regarding details can be answered in the notation. Also fantastic if you want review - a wonderful resource. The price can't be beat- really worth so much more! More is coming so stay tuned.
